BLURB | BACK COVER:
What doesn’t fit and why? Nationals, Blackhawks, Rays, Astros. Not so tough. ANSWER? Blackhawks, because the other teams play Major League Baseball, but the Chicago Blackhawks play in the National Hockey League. OK, try this one: cucumber, tomato, radish, avocado. A little harder, right? ANSWER? Radish, because the others are botanical fruits (they have seeds) that we treat as culinary vegetables, but a seedless radish is a root vegetable. But most of the mind-puzzlers in this fun book don’t test your knowledge of special-area facts or trivia—your “vertical thinking.” Nope. Most of the puzzles in this book test what Edward de Bono calls “lateral thinking”: your ability to think creatively—to leap outside the box. Take this example: poker, chess, skate, score. ANSWER? You'll have to get the book!
ARCHITECT, PAINTER, AND WRITER JEF7REY HILDNER launched The Architect Painter Press in 2005 under the banner, “Live Brave.” The Architect Painter Press presents Hildner’s buildings, paintings, and insights—work that reflects his focus on the visible and invisible architecture of life and art. The Architect Painter Press also seeks to present the work of other artists. Current titles range from Hildner's pamphlet, Picasso Lessons, to his books Daedalus 9, Garches 1234, Henry Trucks — Painter, Metaphysical Warrior, and Visual Ef9ects. His work also appears in a wide array of other venues—for example, Architectural Record, Journal of Architectural Education, ANY, Oz, The Christian Science Monitor, IMDb, and Global Architecture Houses. The book Architectural Formalism, by Hakan Anay, features Hildner’s essay “Formalism: Move | Meaning” alongside essays by theorists Rosalind Krauss, Peggy Deamer, Robert Slutzky, and Colin Rowe. Hildner received an Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture award for excellence in teaching. His project Dante | Telescope House won the New Jersey Chapter of The American Institute of Architects “Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence in Design.” Hildner also writes under the names Madison Gray and Eliot Plum. He paints under the name Henry Trucks. Hildner’s one-word life theme—architecture—shapes his quest, his outlook, and his output, including his work as screenwriter and story architect. He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Princeton University.
